Has Dion’s considered delivery? That would be the awesomest thing on the planet.
Back in the days of disco, founders Bill and Jon did experiment with delivery. See that comely classic car in the photo below? You’re looking at the original Dion’s delivery car.
That’s as vintage as it gets, folks.
When it came down to it, Bill and Jon couldn’t figure out a way to do delivery without raising prices or sacrificing food quality, so they decided to just focus on what they did best: making great food. And we’ve never looked back since.
Well, except to look back at that groovy VW Rabbit. We’ll look back at that any day.
Where can I find a coupon for Dion’s?
Great question! There aren’t any. A lot of restaurants set high prices first and then send out coupons and “limited-time” offers that discount the food to what it’s really worth. We approach things differently, choosing to offer our whole menu at a fair price to everyone. Monday to Sunday, our customers can trust that they’re getting the best value we offer.
When are you going to offer a gluten-free pizza or sub?
The straight answer is that we don’t have any plans at the moment to introduce a gluten-free pizza or baguette. Wheat flour is an integral part of our pizza making process, not to mention the fact that it’s omnipresent in our preparation areas.
That said, all is not lost! We’re very much aware of our loyal fans (and even employees) who eat gluten-free. Here is a list of menu ideas for customers eating a gluten-free diet. With advance notice, a manager can do his or her best to prepare a station to avoid cross-contact with gluten-having ingredients. Bon appétit, sans gluten!
When is Dion’s opening in [insert city here]?
Someday, we promise! We’re working our hardest to bring delicious Dion’s food to as many communities as possible. Our ultimate goal is World Pizza Domination by year 3000, so if all goes as planned, there will be a Dion’s in your neighborhood sometime within the next millennium. When the time comes for your town, we’ll be sure to shout it from the rooftops (and from our social media pages).
Your ranch dressing is divine.
That’s not a question, but thank you!
No, seriously, it’s amazing. Can I have the recipe?
Perhaps. But first we’re waiting for Mr. Sanders to release the names of those eleven herbs and spices. Then we can negotiate.
Have you guys considered having Wi-Fi at your stores?
Wi-Fi is amazing, isn’t it? Images, music and video are sifted from the very air around us. With chiming devices, we access a truly infinite reservoir of knowledge, epiphanies and pictures of cats. Wi-Fi is modern magic.
There’s a different kind of magic, though, that we try to cultivate in our dining rooms. As it says on all of our pizza boxes, “Dion’s was born from a love of food, of people and of the magic that happens when the two come together.” Our dream is for the people in our dining rooms to take a break from the “always on” world and genuinely connect with the people around them.
My pizza was different than it was last time. Have you guys changed the dough recipe recently?
Nope! We think our pizza is the best in the world, so we’re smart enough not to mess with a good thing. In fact, the dough recipe has stayed the same for at least 25 years.
Like a home cooked meal from mom, your pizza might taste a little different each time it’s made. We shred our own cheese, make our own sauce daily, and our dough is never frozen, so each pizza is genuinely a one-of-a-kind creation. If for whatever reason you receive a pizza (or a salad, sub or anything else) that is not up to your expectations, please do not hesitate to speak to a manager.
Do you have nutritional facts for your food?
Who was Dion?
Dion’s was named after none other than Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and rockin’ parties. Our founders, Bill and Jon, initially thought their company was going to be a swinging Greek restaurant, not a pizzeria. Serving pizza was supposed to be just a temporary fill-in while they waited for their gyro machines to arrive. (No joke!)
As to why “Dionysus” was shortened to “Dion’s,” well, that’s a funny story.
What is the best way to reheat my leftover pizza?
Maybe your eyes were bigger than your stomach. Maybe you intentionally ordered a little extra for tomorrow’s lunch. Maybe you just like pizza better the second time around. Whatever the reason, you have leftovers. Don’t worry; reheating is as easy as pie. Pizza pie, that is.
When you’re ready to indulge, pre-heat your oven to 375° and place the slices on a cookie sheet about an inch apart to ensure even heat. After five to seven minutes the cheese should start to melt down the sides. Trust your eyes and nose, and when the pizza looks to be just the right amount of delicious, carefully remove it from the oven and let it cool a bit. Enjoy! And, of course, don’t forget the Dion’s Ranch for dipping.
